Last week’s poll asked whether you had a landline or mobile phone as your main line into your home. While it wasn’t surprising to see a majority of readers using mobile phones instead of landlines, the percentages were much higher than I expected. Crazy town especially when most people continue to be tied to other outdated means of receiving information over lines.
This week’s poll comes courtesy of the Savage Pacer’s Police calls from the Oct. 22, 2011, edition:
Oct. 15: At 8:29 a.m., a woman from Savage reported that somebody had stolen a pumpkin valued at $4 off her front porch. She also reported that earlier in the week someone had smashed her mailbox causing $20 worth of damage.
Oct. 16: At 1:25 a.m., a 15-year-old boy from Prior Lake was cited for curfew ordinance violation after he was detained by a homeowner in Savage. The homeowner told police the boy was part a group of three males who was wrapping toilet paper around his home. The other two escaped. The 15-year-old was released to his parents.
When I was a teenager a friend stole two huge pumpkins from a house at the top of a very long hill, ran down to the car with them, hopped in and told me to, “go!” When we were out of sight from the angry homeowner who saw the theft and ran after my friend the pumpkins were rolled out of the car and down the hill at frightening speed. Other than that single incident, however, I do not recall any Halloween pranks being pulled.
How about you? Did you, your friends or your children ever do any Halloween pranking? Did you ever catch anyone in your neighborhood pulling Halloween pranks on others or yourself? If so what did you do to them? Whatever you have to say about this one vote on the sidebar and then comment on below. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
